You cannot watch TV these days without being bombarded by "Discount double-check", Mayhem or that Farmers guy and while they do make good coverage points, they are all missing a few important qualities.
The first one being outstanding customer service when you purchase a policy from an Allstate, Farmers or State Farm agent, your coverage may be adequate but who likes talking with a call center? Or worse than that, the dreaded automated matrix that you cannot escape when all you want to do is talk to a live person. Most of the time, if you are calling your agent, it is because of a claim. Claims are stressful enough, add in a robot telling you to push four, and it is chaos. Going with an independent agent gives you the opportunity to talk to a real person, in your city who can totally walk you through your claim situation.
Location, location, location. Choosing a local independent agent means they live in your town, know the area where your home is and are probably going through the same climatic issues as you. Which means they can offer a little more understanding of your situation when you need it most? We live and work in Chicago and we know firsthand how important it is to provide high-quality customer service. One way we exemplify this is by servicing our clients in three different languages. We take the time to get to know our clients and to us, you are more than just a policy number.
Not only will we save you save time, but money as well. Insurance companies that pledge to reduce your rates in minutes drastically may seem cost-effective at first, but working with an independent agent can save you money and time over the long term. Instead of presenting you with an instant rate, independent agents will ask questions and take the time to familiarize themselves with you and your business to design a product that willadequately protect you and your assets in the event of a claim.
Rates are rising in Illinois amongst the big name providers, who have billboards claiming to save you $600 a year. Let us do the work for you and find you a policy that can cover you at an affordable rate.
